Lafayette, Indiana Pumpkin Patch Unveils 20-Acre Stranger Things Corn Maze

If you thought the maze of tunnels from the second season of Stranger Things was hard to navigate, wait until you see the 20-acre corn maze inspired by the show.  The maze was created by Exploration Acres, northwest Indiana’s largest corn maze and pumpkin patch.

According to NBC affiliate WTHR, who first reported on the maze, the area of the maze is equal to about 15 football fields and the available paths total over 10 miles, making the maze the largest attraction Exploration Acres has attempted to date.

“After binge-watching the entire Stranger Things series last year, I knew we had a unique opportunity to create an immersive environment for fans at our farm,” Tim Fitzgerald, president and CEO of Exploration Acres, told WTHR.

The overall image, which features the beloved characters of the Netflix Originals series with the show’s heroine, Eleven as the focal point of the maze is actually made up of four separate mazes all ranging in length and difficulty.  The maze was created using new technology that allowed the farm to precisely plant seeds almost as if they were printing the seeds into the field.

The Stranger Things maze will open to the public on September 14 and will remain open until October 28, 2018.  In addition to the maze, Exploration Acres features an 11-acre pick-your-own pumpkin patch, fire pit rentals, hay rides, and several other family-friendly activities.
